The BlogPaws conference was the first “real” conference that I had ever attended. Before BlogPaws I never thought a conference could be so fun and life changing. Those concepts just didn’t go together for me. Let’s be real – those “life changing” conferences can cost upwards of $500-$1000 to attend. These big events are very expensive to put on, so it makes sense that tickets are a bit of the hefty side. However, a BlogPaws ticket only makes a slight dent in your wallet at a fraction of the mainstream conference price (check out specifics here). It’s a very small price considering how much the BlogPaws conference has to offer. Let me break it down for you.
Everyone warned the newbies that this conference would be exhausting. They were right. Honestly, it probably wouldn’t be as bad if I didn’t bring Wynston. Since he’s struggling with the crowds and overstimulation, I’ve spent a lot of time worrying about him and making sure he’s comfortable. I do think that this has been a good experience for him though. Next year since the BlogPaws conference is in Phoenix, AZ, I’ll be able to bring his stroller or leave him home for a day to rest. I’m glad I work from home so when I get back to Arizona on Sunday, I can sleep for a week straight!
